acne scars corrections

Fraxel Laser is the golden standard for correcting textured acne scars such as icepick, boxcar, and rolling scars
These pictures shows the acne scars before and after two sessions of Fraxel dual. Acne scars may be classified into two types: scars that form when tissue is lost, resulting in a depression in the skin’s surface, and scars that form when tissue is raised on the skin’s surface. In fact, this kind of acne scar indicates that your skin is doing its job – maybe too effectively. Your skin produces collagen (“repair tissue”) to aid in the healing of the wound — the acne — but when it produces too much collagen, elevated scars develop. This is an acne scars case study

Fraxel Laser

Most cases requires between 4-8 session of laser, depending on the type, depth of the scars and the skin type. There sessions should be performed between 4-6 weeks apart. Best results are seen 8-12 weeks after the last session. Fraxel Dual is a fractional laser with two wavelengths, 1550 and 1927 nm. It provides a unique balance between ablation and coagulation.
